A Blog's Milestone

According to my Site Meter, after eight months of blogging I have received over a quarter of a million visitors.

Gosh. I'm really flattered. Honest.

Thanks to everyone who stops in to read what I have to say. Thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to link to my site. Thanks to all the reasonable people who post in the Comments section; you really do help me think things through.

And, mostly, thanks to everyone who disagrees with me and is kind enough to hear me out anyway. I can be awfully opinionated, I know. Thanks for putting up with me.
